Order of Malta Christmas Cards available for purchase
We are all living in an age that is increasingly secular and sadly Christmas cards with the image of Jesus Christ are becoming scarce. By sending loved ones a personal Christmas card celebrating the birth of Jesus you have the opportunity to respond to the challenge and effectively defend our faith with this simple gesture.
Every year since the early 1980s, the Australian Association of the Order, has been providing an Annual Christmas Card for use by Members. It always maintained the same theme, an image of the Madonna and Child Jesus with his cousin John, very familiar to us as John the Baptist, the Patron Saint of our Order.
This year on the front cover we have The Madonna and Child with young Saint John the Baptist, by Polidoro da LANCIANO (italian, c. 1515-1565), from the Kerry Stokes Collection, Perth.
On the back of the card is a not about the Order’s history and inside there is a Christmas greeting that reads:
‘May the Joy and Peace of Christmas be with you throughout the Year’
Members, Candidates and friends of the Australian Association are urged to support the spiritual and charitable work of the Order by ordering these exceptional cards.
